Studio 24c -Backing track bleeds onto vocal track - *not* a closed back or semi closed back headphone issue

My setup is -
Windows 10
Shure Sm7b
Presonus 24c
AKG K240 / Sennheiser HD280 pro

The problem is, every time I want to record vocal over a backing track, the backing track bleeds into the vocal track.  This is not a headphones issue it seems, because I can unplug them and monitor using external speakers with no bleed. I can kill the gain on the backing track and it fixes the problem, but defeats the purpose.  I can also distance myself from the mic and there is no change in the waveform of the bleed.  It seems to be an issue with settings that I just don't know about, maybe a driver, or something else.  I've created a tech support ticket at Presonus but they haven't gotten back to me in the timeframe they said they would.  Trying this approach.  Any help is appreciated.

For anyone experiencing this problem, the solution is to go into your Universal Control and turn loopback OFF.  Happy I found the answer through my own troubleshooting, but would have been really nice for presonus tech support/customer care to do what they said and get back to me within *their* stated timeframe.  Onward.

Hey, I'm the chosen one right now...

I'm having this insanely bleeding issue too while tracking guitars. Check it out:

*Loopback is already off. Like I said, everything is INTACT since January 2022. Kind of scared if I need to buy a new one. I live in Brazil and a new interface cost a whole minimun monthly salary.
